Welcome to the May-June 2018 edition of SVCAN -- the Silicon Valley Climate Action Newsletter. This reduced edition focuses on our "good news" articles and does not include upcoming events announcements, a book review, a partner profile and links to other good news articles. Enjoy and keep up the climate fight.
Special Announcement. Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8, for the
RISE FOR CLIMATE, JOBS AND JUSTICE mass march in San Francisco. Right before Governor Brown's Global Climate Action Summit, the mass mobilization on the 8th will demand what our communities and the planet really need: bold, immediate action towards a just transition away from fossil fuels and towards a just, equitable economy. Look for organizing information at CA.Riseforclimate.org and get prepared, Santa Clara County and San Mateo county residents, to hop on Caltrain or a bus and join thousands in San Francisco.
